Presidents Message July 2023

Every year it seems like summer will never get here but once it does it starts flying by! I find myself scrambling to squeeze in all the things I wanted to do once the weather gets nice. The picture above was taken last week from a Dory trip with Connect Outfitters. George & I got our limit of Black Rockfish before 8am then spent the rest of the day chasing silver salmon. We hooked about a half dozen, most of which we lost. It was a great day on the ocean.

Our July 18th meeting is at High Rocks. I don’t have a speaker lined up yet but will let you know when I do. Social hour starts at 6pm and the program at 7pm. 

The July 22nd Fish A Long was scheduled to be at the north arm of Timothy Lake. However, hot weather and warm water have put the damper on this fishery so we will go to Harriet Lake instead. 

For several years now we have been posting monthly fishing reports. Looking back on them is a fun way to get ideas for local fly fishing opportunities currently happening or coming up. Type “July” or “August” and you’ll get all the past reports for that month. 

Please remember our sponsors, they are the lifeblood of the club. Stop by their shops and let them know you appreciate their support. Better yet buy something or book a trip. 

Good fishing!
